I had a similar thing happen this week, not as serious though, the doc prescribed me an acne medication me one of the side effects was vertigo...
If you can, use something that has the smell of rat (like paper towel if you dry your prey off before feeding) to lure them away from the rat, he...
haha yeah, my stimmie loves to burrow, I've found her underneath her waterbowl multiple times in her own little homemade hideaway
my diamond and my stimsons
I don't think it makes a difference i've done it both ways and haven't noticed a change in my snakes, It's really just personal preference :)
I know it's been a couple of months since I started this feed but I thought I'd put some pics of my stimmie in her new setup,
thanks to everyone...
I use a 13 watt ExoTerra UV Bulb, UV isn't necessary for Stimson pythons but I like using it :)
great photo's I think one of my next reptiles will be a gecko :)
Haha yeah thanks, my snakes get pretty spoilt around the holiday season, would love to see a photo of your enclosure you built for your BHP :)
Another photo of my Diamond after a shed from a couple of days ago, her colours are becoming more defined, can't wait to see what the next...
No problem :) and no, I only use the ceramic heat lamp, I've been told that they spread the heat better than heat mats, but I've used heat mats in...
This is my Stimson setup, it's a Melamine enclosure 60X60X60, with two light fittings, I run a 50w Ceramic Heat Emitter in one fitting and...
Got her in the enclosure a couple of days ago, she shed this morning and has been moving around all day
Buying things like heat fittings without measuring to see if they fit in the enclosure where I need them to, then having to go out and spend more...
Hey, I got the enclosure from a bloke up near Lake Macquarie, he didn't want it anymore, he gave me everything he had for it including the tree :)...
:) took me ages to find it, it needed a lot of cleaning to get it to what it looks like now.
have a great Christmas
haha thanks :) was a bit more than I was going to spend but I think it was worth it
have a great Christmas
Yeah I'm also only going to heat the top section, thinking about getting a male diamond down the track and using the bottom section as a breeding...
Low: Losing our Murray River Short Neck Turtle after 7 years, had it since it was a hatchling.

My 18 Month Diamond
My Female Diamond feeding after a shed.
I think I'll go with the under tile method, it sounds like a good idea
Heat mats aren't meant to go directly onto wood, I'm not familiar with Melamine tanks since I've always used glass so I thought that they weren't...
thanks that sounds like a great idea :)
Hey guys, I'm switching out one of my glass tanks for a Melamine one and was wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to heat the base of the tank...
great to hear!
Had one of those, took it back the same day, they are faulty, the temperature fluctuates and it is extremely difficult to program. Go with a...
29-30 Degrees in The Basking Spot for a Diamond, Definitely no higher, avoid temps of 32-34 as previously stated, They come from a colder climate...
great to hear that it's going well!
I recommend getting her onto rats as soon as possible, they have far more protein and are much better for...
My Female Had her First Meal since April Today (30gram Rat + 30g Quail) Be persistent, I spent half an hour with her trying to get her to take an...
My Stimson is Almost 2 and is 110cm, I would say change the size of your food, mine feeds on weaner rats or 30gram Quail, Stimmies can surprise...
Me and my 18 Month old Diamond Python
Ozpet Cat Litter or Kritters Crumble would be my choice
having a bulb that turns off and on will stress out your snake, and like Fractal_man stated it will also cause your bulb to burn out a lot...
HabiStat is probably one of the best
My Stunning 1 and a Half year old Diamond Python
Should be fine, I personally use Ozpet Cat Litter, It works great and doesn't cause any impaction if ingested, it also doesn't look half bad
My Stimson has gone six months without eating, this is not abnormal over the winter period and a little after, I was advised to raise the...
Thank you :) Reptiles101
